This manikin has been designed in consultation with the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS) and is a revolutionary new product which allows trainee lifeguards to learn vital skills. See video link below.
Once thrown into the pool, the manikin quickly sinks beneath the surface and lifeguards can train to retrieve it from the bottom, tow it to the side using a variety of towing techniques, and perfect their lifting techniques. All using one manikin, instead of switching between plastic torsos and live volunteers!
New for 2020 is the Junior sized version. The manikin is 43.3" (1.10m) in height and 35.3 lbs. (16Kg) to represent a 4-5yr old. Statistically, this is an age range most at risk of drowning.
